How to control illegal immigration...

...even if Congress never gets around to putting a reasonable barrier on our southern border?  Simple.  Fine companies who hire illegal immigrants heavily.   Tree trimming company Asplundh has learned the hard way, to the tune of $95 million, that hiring those who don't have a right to work here can be a very expensive way of saving money. 

I still advocate at least a vehicle barrier on the border, and a fence where practical, but at the same time, you've got to see what you can do about the "demand" side of the supply and demand graph for illegal immigration.  Well done, Mr. President.

Please can we fine them black and blue? Pretty please with sugar?


They're the ones who block decent immigration policy. You know I live in a border state. Illegal immigrants are treated like dirt.

I'm surprised you're not recommending flogging. :^)

I'm also good with flogging. But I want the right person flogged... the one who said, "keep this on the QT - but I prefer getting folks without green cards to do this work. We'll call immigration before their last paycheck is due. Saves the company millions."

Here you go.

:^) I bet you could sell a lot of tickets, at least provided the guy with the whip stood for the national anthem.
